You may have recently noticed an increase in traffic and people on the move, as May is National Moving Month!
Hire a good honest mover. Beware of moving scams that can run anywhere from bogus “moving deposits”, to bait-and-switch estimates, to overly-complicated contracts. Estate Treasures and Services is a family-run business that is simply pay-by-the-hour. No funny business, although we like to have fun!
Competitive prices: Before the peak of the moving season, the majority of professional moving companies and truck rental companies have not yet started to charge the highest rates so that they can attract more customers. A summer move will cost you the most with a big moving company.
Disinfect any tools that touch plants in order to prevent the spread of bacteria, fungi, and soil pathogens. Submerge all you lawn tools – lawnmower blades, shovels, trowels, rakes, pruners, etc. – for 30 minutes in a solution of 10% bleach and 90% water.
List the most important items to you. Taking extra care with your most valued possessions will help you feel less stress during the moving process. It is an exciting time, after all, and can also be an enjoyable experience!
